Main sermon text: 1 John 1

The Ultimate Source of Our Ultimate Joy!

In a world of contrasts, John presents 3 tests to distinguish genuine from false believers:

  • Doctrinal Test: What do I believe about Jesus?
  • Moral Test: Do I follow God’s commands?
  • Social Test: Do I love other Christians?

A. John’s Focus on Jesus:

1. This is Jesus — pre-Incarnation.

2. This is Jesus — the Man.

3. This is Jesus — the Message.

B. John’s Focus on Jesus’ Followers:

1. Jesus is our ultimate Source of Fellowship.

2. Jesus is our ultimate Source of Joy.
